 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS For two numbers x and y, HarmonicMean[x,y] = [(GeometricMean[x,y])^2] / Arithmetic Mean[x,y]. What is this sequence, asymptotically? a(n) is prime for n = 2, 4, 5, 6, 12, ... are there an infinite number of prime values? LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=1..35. Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Harmonic Mean. Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, Geometric Mean. FORMULA a(1) = 1, a(2) = 2, for n > 2: a(n+1) = a(n) + ceiling(HarmonicMean(a(n), a(n-1))). a(n+1) = a(n) + ceiling((2*a(n)*a(n-1))/(a(n) + a(n-1))). EXAMPLE a(3) = 2 + ceiling(2*1*2/(1+2)) = 2 + ceiling(4/3) = 2 + 2 = 4. a(4) = 4 + ceiling(2*2*4/(2+4)) = 4 + ceiling(16/6) = 4 + 3 = 7. a(5) = 7 + ceiling(2*4*7/(4+7)) = 7 + ceiling(56/8) = 7 + 6 = 13. a(6) = 13 + ceiling(2*7*13/(7+13)) = 13 + ceiling(182/13) = 13 + 10 = 23. a(7) = 23 + ceiling(2*13*23/(13+23)) = 23 + ceiling(598/36) = 23 + 17 = 40. a(8) = 40 + ceiling(2*23*40/(23+40)) = 40 + ceiling(1840/63) = 40 + 30 = 70. a(9) = 70 + ceiling(2*40*70/(40+70)) = 70 + ceiling(5600/110) = 70 + 51 = 121. a(10) = 121 + ceiling(2*70*121/(70+121)) = 121 + ceiling(16940/191) = 121 + 89 = 210. a(11) = 210 + ceiling(2*121*210/(121+210)) = 121 + ceiling(50820/331) = 210 + 154 = 364. a(12) = 364 + ceiling(2*210*364/(210+364)) = 364 + ceiling(152880/574) = 364 + 267 = 631.
